Hi guys! :) its time for me to start saving for our next Disney trip! I was wondering if anyone had any money saving techniques?

We do like a Christmas Club . So much out of every check !! It adds up quick !!! - skcanfield  589.2 #14 4:29PM
Tax refund. Book The vacation and pay a little every week. - 5disneylovers  1243.2 #7 4:40PM
YES! That is how we paid for our last 2 trips to Florida.... - ncjal  321.0 #28 4:50PM
Yep that is what pays the bulk of our trips. I also roll up all loose change, and set money aside from paychecks. - Lelundrial  773.2 #266 6:13PM
For our trip I set up an online bank account (ING) and set up weekly deposits from our regular checking account. I started when my daughter was a baby with $20 a week, we are leaving next Saturday on her 4th birthday. As soon as this trip is over we start saving for next trip in 3 years, when our son will be 4. Happy saving! ;) - txdisneymomma  137.0 #63 2:22PM
That is a great idea!!! - ncjal  321.0 #28 3:13PM
I have recently been doing rebates, selling aliminum soda cans to the local recycling place, using coupons, etc. and any of the money I make off that stuff goes into our Disney Jug! You can also only spend dollars at the store, and put any of the "change" into a jug....loose change adds up QUICKLY!!! - ncjal  321.0 #28 3:15PM
We save change, I have money go from My primary checking into a secondary checking I only use for Christmas and vacation once a month but you can do it weekly if you want, we recycle aluminum cans and that goes into account also. We also use birthdays and holidays to request Disney gift cards as gifts. This help alot. Happy saving - mmddgp  1282.9 #5 3:19PM
I to have a separate bank account. I work full time and 250 every two weeks goes into the trip fund. Every two years we go! It usually takes about two years to get what I need.. Also we have to travel school vacation - we are teachers. If we go in the summer it is cheaper! Works for us - worth every penny saved! - timon  12.0 #230 3:35PM
We do the same pretty much...once a month we put 500 from my paycheck, and 500 from my husbNd pay...into a joint account...we also put our loose change into a container... - islandgirl58  479.1 #19 3:47PM
I have a small percentage from every paycheck deposited into two savings accounts. One I am really good at forgetting about, the other I use for anything extra (like WDW vacations!) or unexpected. It really adds up fast! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1457.0 #3 3:51PM
I buy Disney gift cards throughout the months up until our vacation, and use them as my spending money. No worries about breaking the bank, or charging up the credit cards. - PixieDust76  93.4 #78 8:04PM
Credit cards! Just kidding! ... Put a little away each week. It adds up! - goofygal  12605.1 #7 8:10PM
